Tour Beautiful La Belle Amie Vineyards!
When vacationing at Plantation Resort, we're always seeking to provide dozens of activities and amenities to fill your vacation with lasting memories! This fall, we are pleased to announce the addition of our newest event: a delightful tour at beautiful La Belle Amie Vineyards.
La Belle Amie, which is French for "the beautiful friend", is owned and operated by the Bellamy family. The Bellamy's tradition of wine making has been passed down from their ancestors who resided in the south of France. The property, originally a farm settled by the Bellamy family in the 1800s, was developed into La Belle Amie Vineyards in the 1990s and features vines that are more that 1oo years old!
Beginning at 10am, you'll board our Plantation Resort shuttle buses and enjoy a relaxing ride to Little River, where La Belle Amie Vineyards is located. Upon arrival, you'll be taken on a tour of the property by the owner, Vicki, who will share with you the history of the vineyard, the farm's operations and the incredible flowers and plant life found at La Belle Amie. Following the tour, you'll enjoy a sack lunch provided by the Resort.
In the afternoon, you'll be able to experience the tasting room, where the vineyard's experts teach you the five steps of sampling wine. There's a wide variety of wines to choose from, including reds, whites and rosés. At the conclusion of the tour, you can peruse the vineyard's fabulous gift shop for souvenirs, which include wineglasses, racks, corkscrews, sauces, salsas, flavored cooking oils, relishes and, of course, your favorite wine from the vineyard's private label!
